The 2016 Pinot Noir Akiko's Cuvée is another stellar wine from Freeman. Deep and pliant, with terrific depth, it will benefit from another year to two in the cellar, but it is super-impressive, even in the early going. I very much like the density and weight here, and yet the Akiko's Cuvée remains light on its feet, as all the wines do. Vineyards sites in this blend are Yu-ki, Gloria, Campbell Ranch and Pratt Sexton.

2016 Freeman, Akiko's Cuvee Pinot Noir

Winery Notes:
Each year since our inaugural 2002 vintage, Freeman has released an Akiko’s Cuvée. To make this special wine, Akiko Freeman and her winemaking staff taste every barrel of our Pinot Noir from the current vintage and everyone chooses their favorites. Next, each person’s top barrels are blended together to create a cuvée. The sample blends are then tasted blind, and a friendly competition ensues. Whose blend will be the team favorite? The resulting wine is called Akiko’s Cuvée, because Akiko’s blend almost always wins.
